Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands.

All grapes are hand picked in pristine condition, refrigerated overnight and treated to a gentle whole bunch pressing. Juices are transferred directly into Burgundian oak barrels under strict temperature controls to ensure a slow fermentation, allowing for the development of more complex flavours and seamless integration with oak. Upon completion, without any exposure to malolactic, lees are stirred gently once a week until the perfect balance between oak, lees and fruit is achieved. Components are matured ten months in a selection of new and prior use French oak barriques by Fran├žois Freres, Seguin Moreau, Damy and Marsannay.
Brilliant medium straw. Lifted aromas of fresh white nectarine, apricot with lemon rind notes as underlying nutty aromas develop in the glass. Vibrant stonefruit and delicate citrus flavours, subtle hints of roasted nut, the mouthfeel is fleshy with intense fruit characters yet medium in weight and beautifully structured. The oak is perfectly integrated within the lingering spicy finish, ideally alongside garlic butter seafood over lemon dill risotto.
